After the closures, starting next week, the public will no longer be able to walk all the way from Drypool Bridge to Myton Bridge via the boardwalk, but High Street is available as an alternative route.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for road and highways, said: “These sections of the River Hull boardwalk are very old are reaching the end of their life. “After detailed inspections it has been decided that the structures must be closed to ensure the safety of the public. Once they have been made safe, we will be able to make a plan for the future of the boardwalk. “We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause.” Inspections, which are part of Hull City Council’s ongoing structural monitoring regime, have shown that some northern sections of the boardwalk need to be closed while the council asses its options for the restructure. Work to close the sections of the boardwalk is due to start on Monday October 18 and will be carried out from 8am to 5pm on weekdays. The work is expected to take up to two weeks.
